Bats in my parasol!

How fascinating ... they've picked your parasol for a summer roost ... I wonder where they go in the winter?  

Great photo ... perhaps there's enough info there for someone to make an ID ...

Fairy ... Snap!  I did mumps and chicken pox  (both really badly)  in my thirties ... I had spots where a lot of people don't even have places!!!   

Just stopped for a mug of coffee .......................... right, off I go again .................. 

CAN I save my tomatoes?

I would pick them and bring them indoors and place them on a warm windowsill or similar place ... that's what I do in those circumstances and most of them ripen.  

Ones that stubbornly remain green get turned into chutney.
